Procrastination with a Purpose

February 3, 2013

Procrastination happens for a reason. A quote I saw once suggested that often, it's because I don't give ourselves enough between projects to fully rest and enjoy the sense of accomplishment before starting the next. I feel reluctant to begin something, not because I'm not interested, but because I'm still not finished with the past project. A project is not complete until it includes the rest.

Can I start to plan my project times to include this "Sabbath" before jumping into the next thing? How will that shape my priorities and sense of wholeness in my work and learning? If you do this, or a willing to give it a try, leave a comment below!
